An amount equal to the size of the tortoise is good. Once a day every day. What are you feeding?

They should be allowed to eat everyday. Outdoor grazing on broadleaf weeds is best.

Those things aren't good to be fed as a constant diet. thetortoisetable.org has a great list of edible weeds and vegetables. And how often they should be fed.

No doubt he likes that stuff, just like you like candy and ice cream, but he needs a better diet than that. Please do some research.

Here is a thread I did for sulcatas. Just ignore all the grass stuff, but there are lists of weeds and other things that might give you some ideas.
